Game over

Jayanti, Vikram
In May 1997 Gary Kasparov, widely regarded as the greatest chess player the world has ever seen, played Deep Blue - a hulking one and a half ton IBM supercomputer. As it played out in the media, this was a chess tournament and scientific experiment that would question our dominance as the most intelligent entity on the planet. Capturing people's imaginations, the outcome of this 'Man vs. Machine' battle was stunning. To win the match, the computer did what many thought impossible at the time - it appeared to think like a human.
